    As long as the strip isn't creeping most of the way down the windshield or oddly cut I think it would look fine. Really dont have to worry much about that matching the rest of the tint because it serves a more safety oriented purpose vs looks alone. I think it would actually look pretty good on red because of the contrast.
    I am not that sensitve to light but it does bother me. It also comes in right between the visor and mirror. I have decided to get mine done when I get the tint. I am going to get it like Ruh Roh's. Right down to those marks in the windsheild. Which doesnt look to be much below the mirror mount on the windshield. I have to look everything over alittle closer , but i think thats what I am doing.

    35% Tint all around. Done by Shades of Gray in Feasterville, PA. Awesome shop. $180 cash. If I could do it again, I'd go 30%, but that's nitpicking. It looks really good, I think. Not too dark, but it still cuts way down on the heat and glare. It was pretty cloudy when I took pics....

    I guess I will post mine.. The tint is 18% and probably will do the windshield later on. I'm glad I didn't get 5% on the rear because 18% makes it really dark at night.

    Just had the tints done yesterday (20%) and had the front wrapped in a clear bra. Today I attempted the tail light overlay, needless to say I should of had the shop do it. They look okay from a couple paces away but are a real pita. When they start to peel I'm going to just paint them. Big improvement over the stock Euros IMO.

    I went 15% all around and decided on no strip up front. I think w/ the strip in front might make it a tad too dark inside at night. I will admit the red illumination kit I installed really looks awesome w/ the super dark interior at night.
